We will accept applications from temporary residents (who hold a TSS 457, 482, 485, 820, 491 or 494 visa subclass) if you obtained your primary medical qualification in Australia or New Zealand. However, the following additional documentation is required:
- Evidence of an active Australian permanent residency application before close of applications; OR
- Completion of the ‘Temporary resident applicant declaration’ stating that you will gain Australian permanent residency by the completion of the AGPT Program.
- Letters of support from each of the training organisations for your preferred training region/s.
If you are not yet an Australian permanent resident, it is your responsibility to ensure that your current visa allows you to work as an AGPT registrar.
Are you an overseas-trained doctor?
Overseas-trained doctors residing on a temporary visa are ineligible for the AGPT Program, unless they receive Australian permanent residency before close of applications.
Use the AGPT Program Eligibility Flow Chart in the AGPT Eligibility Guidelines to self-assess eligibility status.
